power grid, according to the Institute for Energy Security.

The institute’s Peter Marčan told journalists on Wednesday, March 24, that distribution companies report having received applications for connection to the grid amounting to over 1,900 megawatts of installed capacity from renewable energy sources. Households would pay €49 to €67 more per year than they do now, depending on how many kilowatt hours of electricity they consume, for these renewable energy sources.
